Earth isn't how she always imagined it. She'd been in cities before, of course, but…

It just isn't what she expected.

Teyla balances a cup of coffee in one hand and tries to follow a conversation about a country she has never been to. She is looked at for an opinion, because in this new life Iraq is where she met John. ("Shotgun wedding, apparently. Knocked her up…")

Her silence is taken for sadness; an air force wife pats her hand and smiles sympathetically, "It must be very difficult for you, being so far from home."

Teyla just smiles and nods.
